According to Russia Beyond, the 470 is a school for dog trainers that has been in existence for several decades. It's also where the Russian military breeded the Black Terrier, sometimes known as "Stalin's Dog."

Approximately 3,000 dogs are trained for guard work and mine detection in the Russian Armed Forces, according to RT.
